The board of Public Justice generally performs three functions for the organization: (i) providing required board oversight, (ii) fundraising and (iii) supporting our organization’s litigation, advocacy, and operations under the guidance of our strategic vision. The board does this largely through a group of committees.
Please join us in improving all aspects of our organization by signing up to be on a committee! Please note that the commitment level varies by committee; generally speaking, committees that perform board oversight require less time than fundraising and strategic support. Committee goals and effort will be articulated early upon formation, and adjustments can be made. Broad information about particular Public Justice committees is below.
Please note that there are some changes this year.
First, because the Board approved the work of the Strategic Planning Committee, that committee is not renewed. However, there is a new Strategic Implementation Committee that is charged with overall oversight of ensuring implementation of the Strategic Direction and undertaking efforts in furtherance of the Strategic Direction that are not expressly within the ambit of other committees, with the notion that the Public Justice Board is a working board that should support the efforts of staff. Second, functions of the Audit committee are modestly expanded.
To indicate your interest in serving on one or more committees through summer 2023, please fill out this form by close of business on Monday, August 1, 2022. You may also indicate your preferences in an email to Senior Meetings and Events Manager Susan Gombert at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to chair or co-chair a committee, please indicate that at the end of the form. Please note that if you do not respond we may not automatically roll over membership in a committee from one year to the next.
